Weekend Action

 

A wet build up to yesterday’s Whitstable Park Run probably had the effect of reducing field size, as three TRAC members were among 83runners taking on the standard course. Stephen Forshaw was 10th, with Terry Brightwell now on 99 runs. Bill Wright was the last member of the trio.

Thanks to John Cooper for the following write up: -
Sunday 16th December saw Nice Work stage the Christmas Cracker 5 mile at Fowlmead, Deal. On a dry and relatively mild December morning, the main race saw 136 runners finish the course, which was just under 5 miles (4.85 miles on Garmin GPS). Some runners got into the festive spirit by dressing up accordingly. TRAC were well supported on the day with 12 runners in the main event, including Oliver Cooper making his senior debut just 17 days after his 15th Birthday. The overall winner of the race was South Kent Harriers’ Michael Coleman in a time of 24 mins 25 seconds. The first 10 runners all broke the 30 minute mark.

The first TRAC runner home was Alex Horsley who finished in 12th place in a time of 30:31, closely followed by Oliver Cooper in 13th place in 31:42. The first TRAC lady home was Clare Green in 32nd place in a time of 36:03. Claire Green, Delphi Lever and Tanya Edwards made up the TRAC'S ladies team who finished first in the team event. Other Thanet prize winners were 1st Junior Male (15-17yrs) Oliver Cooper, 1st Male Vet 50 John Cooper, 1st male vet 65 Brian Snead, 3rd Female and 1st Senior Female Claire Green, 1st Female V60 Carol Walker. TRAC's men’s team finished on 41 points and were pipped to first place by Canterbury Harriers who scored 36 points.
There was also a 2 mile fun run which was won comfortably won by TRAC'S Alex Kavanagh.
